"I don't want to set the world on fire..."
Halloween was delightful- I viewed several performances of Larry Schmidt's always wonderful Driveway Follies. Michael was one of the puppeteers!
Also, I've been sorting the books in the Duchess Reading Room of Children's Fairyland, and I can't help but stop myself constantly when I come across books with 50's style illustrations. This one reminds me of being in the 4th grade, when we learned about simple machines, and I made a crane truck with sewing spools, string, and cardboard. FUN!

Hey! I'd been wanting to post these photos for a while, but I didn't want to spoil the surprise for anyone going to Fairyland's Jack-o-Lantern Jamboree last weekend. Now that it's over, here are a few pics of the Candyland-themed Alice in Wonderland tunnel. My friend Mary Anne Kluth was Artistic Director of the event this year, and it turned out splendid. Watching her fill the tunnel with sugary confections got me craving sweets everyday.
Caucus Wheel characters with candies!
Madhatter gumball party craziness:
The Cheshire cat and giant mushrooms turned into giant cupcakes!
OK! That's all for now, more pics later perhaps, but now I'm off to see a halloween puppet show!
